Grow food in your fridge
Herbs and vegetables taste better when they are fresh. Hanna Sandstrom created a new refrigerator which provides additional space where herbs and plants can be planted and grown. Integrated light, temperature and moisture control, nutrition and water provide for growth and progress. With this refrigerator everyone can cultivate their own healthy food at home.
Why it matters
Does the convenience of being able to grow food inside your home make it more accessible to everyone? With outdoor space becoming scarce is this a real alternative to the garden allotment?
The boring chore of taking out the rubbish becomes more artistic with the rubbish bags of Suck UK with different examples of design including a goldfish and Christmas pudding.
Yellow Strom is keeping its customers informed by enabling meters to tweet about energy use. Each smart meter has its own twitter account which is updated with individual household energy usage. Thus, consumers can monitor and adapt their energy use to save money and help the environment.
